If you prefer to learn in a traditional classroom environment, this format is perfect for you. Our course materials are incorporated into a live, in-class environment for those who want to meet their peers, network and learn. In-class instruction allows students to share ideas, gain insights and broaden their skills and knowledge in a classroom setting.

This course closely follows the curriculum design document put forward by the Alberta Insurance Council for the Level 1 exam and is designed to be an important step in obtaining your Level 1 license. You will  be provided with a variety of learning opportunities including discussions and quizzes using multiple choice questions similar to what you will experience in the exam. Because of the condensed nature of this course additional study outside of the classroom is recommended for the best opportunity for success.

Recognition by the Insurance Institute of Canada: Once you have your licence, you will be eligible to apply to the Insurance Institute to receive credit for C11: Principles and Practice of Insurance. C11 will give you one credit towards completion of your Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP) program.
